Off Topic: Packaging Swing Apps for Windows

Sorry for being somewhat off-topic but can anyone recommend a solution for packing a Swing application into a native Windows .exe? I have looked at JexePack but ideally, I would like to be able to build from Solaris. It works quite well to build an OS X .app package from Solaris using Ant to assemble everything. I am afraid there is no such solution for a Windows .exe package.

How about JSmooth?

It doesn't pack every components into a .exe file, but it wraps a java
application to make a Windows application. It's a Swing application so
it would also work on Solaris.
